This is NOT a movie for teenagers or people who expect action or lame comedy.

This is an incredible satire with a good sense of humor, spectacular visuals, solid script, pacing and a truly talented cast. The mix between funny, serious and dramatic is spot-on and in a lot of ways this is a pretty unique movie. Great job by Michael Bay and the entire cast and crew.

Go see that movie. ASAP.
